    Or "When I lived in Paris, I would go to the cinema every day".
    You could also say:
    "I used to/would go to the cinema every day when I lived in Paris".

    I don't think there is anything wrong with saying:

    When I lived in Paris, I went to the cinema every day (although I'd be more likely to write 'when I was living in Paris, I went to the cinema every day' - past continuous punctuated by past events)

    When I lived in Paris, I would go to the cinema every day

    When I lived in Paris, I used to go to the cinema every day
